Video of the Week: 1990 Leyland Daf T244 Expedition Truck Build

The Leyland Daf T244 is a 4-tonne British Army vehicle that was manufactured in Lancashire in Northwest England. Owner Alex Jackson bought this truck specifically because of its 12-valve Cummins 6BT engine and spent roughly $70-thousand (Canadian) total between the truck and the habitat build.

Alex performed a slew of upgrades including adding a custom front steel bumper, a rotary injection pump, a transmission swap, and a 100-gallon fuel tank. He also added a tire carrier with a mechanical hand-crank hoist for a full-sized spare. Check out the video for a full breakdown of everything Alex did to make this unique vehicle expedition-ready.
